Devons Ca Ching Extends Win Streak in Pepsi Cola Stakes
RSS Feeds Saturday, January 19, 2013
Ken Tohill rode Devons Ca Ching to a half-length victory in the 6-furlong, $85,000 Pepsi Cola Stakes (R) for New Mexico-bred 3-year-olds at Sunland Park on Saturday.

Saddled by Ray Ashford Jr. for owner Lester Wright, Devons Ca Ching covered his three-quarter mile trip in 1:10.10 while scoring his third consecutive win. The $51,000 winner's share of the purse boosted the gray or roan gelding's earnings to $93,717.

Devons Ca Ching was bred by Ray Simpson, and the gelding became the 14th stakes winner from 290 starters sired by Devon Lane, a winning Maryland-bred stallion by Storm Cat whose Thoroughbred runners have banked more than $9.2 million and include River's Prayer, the winner of the 2007 Princess Rooney Handicap (G1) at Calder Racecourse in Miami, and Quarter Horse multiple stakes winner Devons Easy Lane.

Devon Lane has also sired the Quarter Horse earners of more than $1.7 million, including stakes winner Devons Easy Lane and Devons Signature, a colt who ran third in world champion DM Shicago's 2004 All American Futurity (G1) at Ruidoso Downs. A half brother to multiple Grade 1 winners and millionaires Stellar Jayne and Starrer, Devon Lane while breeding a mare at TNL Farm in Bosque, New Mexico, on May 21, 2012. He was 19 at the time of his death.

Devons Ca Ching's dam, New Focus, is a winning 18-year-old daughter of the Riverman stallion Half A Year who ran second in the 2000 Survive Stakes at Santa Anita Park. New Focus' starters include Favorite Flag, a half sister to Devons Ca Ching who won the 2010 New Mexico Breeders' Oaks Stakes (R) at Sunland Park.

Devons Ca Ching traces back to his third dam, the winning Sir Gaylord mare Lady Gold (FR). A 1974 foal, Lady Gold produced Lolly Dolly (GB), a filly by Alleged who was graded stakes placed in France in '84.

A $2,700 buy at the 2011 New Mexico-Bred Yearling Sale at Ruidoso Downs, Devons Ca Ching has won three of four starts. The gelding was coming off of two-length victory in a 6-furlong, non-winners-of-two allowance race at Sunland on December 21.

Thermal finished second, a half of a length in front of Kiss My Hennessy. Storms Surprise, Hush's Storm, Indication N M, Mos Dancer, Key To The Venture, Rio El Diablo, Jenson's Miracle, Keagan's Way, and Attila's Hurricane.

Thermal has earned $190,847 from nine outs for owner R.D. Hubbard, who also bred the dark bay or brown gelding by Attila's Storm. Thermal has won four races, including last year's 6-furlong, $140,000 New Mexico Cup Colts & Geldings Stakes (R) at Zia Park, and 5-furlong, $134,957 Mountain Top Futurity (R) at Ruidoso Downs.

Kiss My Hennessy has banked $186,598 for owners Joe Dee Brooks and Scott Bryant, who acquired the dark bay or brown Roll Hennessy Roll gelding for $19,000 at the 2011 New Mexico-Bred Yearling Sale. Kiss My Hennessy's three victories in eight outs include a 1 1/2-length score in the colts and geldings division of the 4 1/2-furlong, $120,989 Copper Top Futurity (R) at Sunland Park, and a 6 1/2-length win in the 5 1/2-furlong, $172,026 Rio Grande Senor Futurity (R) at Ruidoso Downs.
